Lawmakers must pass three key issues to be able to call 2021 session a success, Kentucky Chamber says

As the legislative session comes to a close and only six working days remain, the Kentucky Chamber wrote to all legislators Tuesday urging them to take action on three key priorities to help the state and small businesses recover from the COVID-19 pandemic.

In the letter, the Chamber said transportation investment, liability protections for small businesses, schools, and others, and money for the state’s drained unemployment insurance fund must be prioritized.

Without tackling these issues, the legislature will have neglected to truly help get our economy back on track and ensure employers can recover from the pandemic,” Kentucky Chamber President and CEO Ashli Watts wrote.

The Chamber has been very vocal on these issues, advocating for increased funding for transportation for many years and sounding the alarm on the adverse impacts of the strain on the UI system and costly litigation faced by companies trying to follow changing guidelines.
